At the outskirts of this extremely calm and peacefull village you will find this monument as a remembrance of the limited yet important french influence in Sout-Africa, tolerated by the Dutch. Remarkable is the total absence of barbed wire or brick walls around the hotels...More

Very fitting memorial to the Huguenot family that fled France and then basically creating Franschhoek, and the wine region here for what we can appreciate today. Situated at one end of the village with the mountains as its backdrop, this is worth the short walk...More

The monument itself is not much to see. However the setting in the surrounding landscape is beautiful. The history of the French Huguenots and the wine making is also interesting.

We took a stall to this memorial monument during the morning before it was to hot, and it was really intresting to read about the history. It is also very beautiful and the surroundings are amazing. Worth a visit to be familiar with the history.

Surrounded by a lovely little park at the end of the main street, it also has a historical cemetery behind it and the museum beside it. There really isn't anything special to see and it may not hold any significance without being aware of the...More
